Improving the elements of corn growing technology for biogas production

Objectives of the project

The project aims to determine the yield of green mass of corn hybrids and the output of biogas at different levels of mineral nutrition and the use of plant growth regulators. It is planned to determine: corn hybrid, which provides maximum yield and biogas output; features of growth, development of corn hybrids depending on the level of mineral nutrition and plant growth regulators; formation of photosynthetic productivity of corn hybrids under the influence of mineral fertilizers and plant growth regulators; yield of green mass of corn hybrids and product quality indicators; calculation of biogas output and energy from biogas depending on the studied factors.

Field experiments will be conducted in the research field of Bila Tserkva National Agrarian University (Ukraine) in 2022. Determination of quality indicators of corn green mass will be carried out in a certified laboratory.

Key words: corn, biogas, mineral nutrition, green mass yield, plant growth regulators
